We were elected into the TripAdvisor Hall of Fame in 2018, denoting 5 consecutive years of excellence,....  More.....  


Small is Beautiful

Small batches of very fresh food makes for delicious menu items - and our specials are even better.  Our team of chefs are dedicated and skilled, having apprenticed at some very impressive venues. Their skill shows throughout.


Casual Courtyard Dining

Seat yourself at any of our beautiful marble tables beneath the green umbrellas - or join us for a cocktail at the Gecko Gazebo Bar, overlooking the center courtyard of Mongoose Junction, surrounded by lush terraces, cozy shops and galleries.  


We're foodies, but not in a pretentious way the menu has something for everyone, including gluten free and vegetarian choices.  Ray Charles was asked, when challenged about playing Blues, Jazz, Country and Gospel Music said "There's only two kinds of music: Good and Bad"

We feel the same way about food!.
